2006 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Yes it's small. But it has a pretty decent amount of interior space for its size. SES package gives you the controls on the steering wheel, which is nice. As for comfort, it is perfect for my wife (5'3") but not at all comfortable for me (6'5"). Engine is not very powerful, but it's only noticeable when the car is really loaded down. MPG is heavily dependent on how you drive it. No mechanical problems after 4+ years, just one long-term rattle underneath that the mechanics have not been to locate. Antenna base got water in it and therefore some corrosion, and now radio reception is horrible.

Best Features

Good handling, small footprint, good interior space, nice styling, good ground clearance, SES package.

Worst Features

Cramped legroom, fit & finish is not great, shift points are horrible, engine loud under stress, paint scratches too easily
